The Industrial Development Bureau hosted the "2022 Green Factory, Industrial Carbon Reduction Achievement, and Green Technologies Engineering Practical Seminar"for sharing the achievements of manufacturing carbon reduction and practical exchanges. The opening remark addressed by the Director General of the Industrial Development Bureau, Ching-Chang Lien, and words of encouragement by the VP of the Chinese National Federation of Industries, Show Chung Ho respectively.
Meanwhile, 18 companies celebrated as Greenhouse Gases Reduction Model Companies, 10 companies awarded with Certificate of Green Recycled Product, and 20 business awardees of Green Factory Label were invited to light up the LED wall on stage to celebrate a decennial anniversary and embrace the next 10 years. The Green Technologies Engineering Practical Seminar were also held in this event, 28 paper authors were invited to present on topics of "Air Quality and Carbon Reduction", "Resource Consumption Reduction and Reuse", "Industrial Water Saving and Water Reclamation", "Circular Economy and Environmental Planning and Management", and other green technology practices.
Since 2005, the Industrial Development Bureau of Ministry of Economic Affairs has been implementing various measures such as promoting industrial green house gases reduction, introducing energy-saving and carbon-reducing technologies, establishing energy management system, applying green technologies and equipment, and disclosing environmental information of products. A working group has been established in conjunction with the Chinese National Federation of Industries, industrial associations, and related business. The manufacturing industry continues transforming towards low carbon, more than 18.1 million metric tons of carbon emissions has been reduced by far.
The Industry Development highlighted that the "Industrial Carbon Neutral Alliance" has been established together with the Chinese National Federation of Industries and industrial associations in July, 2022. Along with three key strategies, including "Bolstering Industrial Carbon Management Capability", "Establishing an Industrial Carbon Reduction Service Platform", and "Promoting Diversification of 'Large Enterprises Lead SMEs'Approach" to drive the low-carbon transformation of Taiwan's manufacturing industry.
To achieve long-term net-zero emissions goal, the industries still needs to upgrade the adoption of existing mature technologies, such as accelerating the replacement of old equipment, replacing coal with natural gas and biomass fuels etc. And pre-positioning forward-looking technologies, such as hydrogen ironmaking, carbon dioxide reuse, and multi-pronged efforts to promote net-zero transformation actions in order to accelerate the pace towards the national goal of net-zero carbon emissions.
Videos of events have been uploaded to the event page on "Industrial Energy Saving and Carbon Reduction Information Web" (https://ghg.tgpf.org.tw/) You are welcomed to view and master the practices of net-zero transition.
